Bob Dickinson, former CEO of @CarnivalCruise: Stop targeting immigrants, the backbone of Florida’s tourism industry.
Constituents are at the district office of @senatormannydiazjr urging him to vote NO on anti-immigrant bill SB168. This bill will force police to cooperate with ICE, eroding the trust between them and the public and separating families in the process.
Today, we joined FL Sen. @josejavierjjr and Rep. @dotiejoseph to announce powerful legislation that would expand access to driver's licenses and state IDs to all immigrants, regardless of status. This would be life changing for our families and for all Floridians. Support SB 135/HB 969! Hoy, nos unimos al Senador José Javier Rodriguez y al Representante Dotie Joseph de FL para anunciar leyes poderosas que expandirían el acceso a las licencias de conducir y las identificaciones estatales a todos los inmigrantes, independientemente de su estado migratorio. Esto cambiaría la vida de nuestras familias y de todos los floridanos. ¡Apoya SB 135/HB 969!
Call these lawmakers and tell them to vote NO on family separation Senate Bill 168!
Senator Victor Torres understands why SB168 would be bad for Florida. “SB168 is an unfunded mandate that fails to address costs of detainment and hands over tasks of federal authorities to local police. As a former detective myself, I find this puzzling.”

Today we celebrate #InternationalWomensDay! Yesterday our team had the privilege of fighting for the rights of women across the state at the Florida Capitol. Our volunteers, members, and partners worked to uplift bills that benefit women of color, while fighting to oppose bills that are harmful to immigrant women and their families.

Reporting from Tallahassee.
March 8 is International Women's Day and today we have women all across Florida that have traveled to Tallahassee demanding the rights and protections we deserve in our state. Keep your flowers! We want equity, opportunity, and freedom for all our families. Stand with women. Trust women. We are changing Florida for the better!
